Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill are set to reunite for a follow-up to their hit cop comedy 21 Jump Street.

The actors brought the popular 1980s Tv series back to life on the big screen last year (12) as they portrayed police officers who are sent back to school posing as students.

The movie proved to be a big hit with cinema-goers, grossing more than $201 million (£125.6 million) worldwide upon its release, and now studio bosses at Sony Pictures Entertainment are gearing up for a second installment.

Screenwriter Michael Bacall has already begun working on the sequel, although it is not yet known whether Phil Lord and Chris Miller will return to direct.

A release date has tentatively been set for 2014.
